obama has made. now that the obama administration has made the tough decisions, now mr. romney wants to take credit and hoodwink the voters. he had a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney

that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler construction services. mr. romney argued that president obama's stimulus had failed to help private companies. >> a new stimulus three years after the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the ties. you know you're in that moment now. as noted at think progress today, kinsler construction services benefitted from $700,000 from the stimulus that mr. romney says did no good for any companies in the private sector. you can try to make the argument that the stimulus program did not help private businesses even though the evidence shows the opposite is true. when you'
and makes the argument he has a record of that achievement mr. romney didn't match being in office-- mr. obama can't match being in the office virtually four years and he made the remarks in new hampshire and in ohio and by the estimates, 30,000 people in the crowd, by other estimates 20,000. and he'll come back to iowa to sleep and three hours in the sack another three or four states, all told about nine, excuse me, seven states and 13 events in the final 96 hours and actually now down about to 80. uma? >> an amazing schedule. it's unbelievable, the pace to keep up in the final days before the campaign. carl, i know you're going to be sticking with the romney campaign there all the way through, thank you for that update and we'll be checking back with you as we get closer to the election day. we'll take a quick break and when we come back, we'll talk to a key political observer about his thoughts on the the race and why he thinks the race is still too close to call. don't go away. . hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good?

was growing at 6.3%. three times what mr. obama has accomplished. you know, if the participation rate was the same today as it was when the recovery began -- not too long ago, mr. goolsbee, the unemployment rate would be 9.6%. in fact, baby boomer's participation is actually increasing. because in this poor economy, their retirement accounts are worth so little and they're not getting any interest on their cds that they're going back to work. the labor force -- >> hold on a second. but, peter, peter, peter, peter, peter, we're four days from election. just tell me, we -- if you want to relitigate the recession, we can do that. we'll need another hour to do that. let's talk about job creation. both presidential candidates have made a promise they will create 12 million jobs in four years. once was in world war ii, the last two times were under reagan and clinton where economic growth was in excess of 4%. your an economist. are you thinking we're going to get 4% growth in the next couple of years? >> yeah, i do. if mr. romney is elected, we will get 4% to 5% growth. >> why? >> because h
for their rights within our own republic. mr. obama has transferred his views to the palestinian struggle. he has done this on several occasions. noting that the palestinians fight for their rights. i find that obama's reading of history, the painful memory of burning cities. it was also at the heart of the african-american struggle for their rights. i grew up in this era. and i think that we will remember if we delve into our memories of the president in 1968, lyndon johnson, could not employ the 82nd airborne in vietnam. though he wanted to. because it was in detroit. palestinians are not fighting for their rights. they have their rights. they are inalienable. even to them, as it says in the declaration of independence. they are inalienable by god. it is an entirely different kind of a struggle than a struggle for rights. the struggle for freedom includes a different kind of tactic. especially when those engaged by lunch counter citizens or bust boycotts. so let's be blunt about this trouble. violence is a fact of history. it is certainly not lost on the palestinians of the west bank. there is
. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the pol
to where it was when mr. obama took office as president. in january of 2009, it was 7. %. there was a stimulus in february 2009. hundreds of billions of dollars spent into the economy, the unemployment rate kept rising to 10% before moving slowly lower now to 7.8%. again the forecast is for it to pick up in october to 7.9%. let's take a look at the job creation trends. that's the other part of this story. you can see when the president took office hundreds of thousands of jobs being lost every month. that was the financial crisis and the recession. then it has been slow, very slow incremental gains in jobs since then over the past couple of years. there has been job creation. month after month after month. but some months have not been even robust enough to absorb new entrants into the workforce. that's where it gets political you guys. the question is, has this been good enough, has the president made it better or worse, and could mitt romney do better? that's what everyone will decide on tuesday. >> that's what they'll be fighting about starting today at about 8:30 t
said. >>> before sandy, romney was on a roll topping president obama in poll after poll. but in the wake of the devastating superstorm, did sandy stall romney's momentum? here now are keith boykins and robert costa, jonathan colegio. mr. costa, i go to you on the conservative side. i think that barack obama did himself a lot of good. >> barack obama has had a decent week because he's been presidential in handling of this crisis in new jersey and new york. but ha we still see from the romney campaign is he's competitive in pennsylvania. he's competitive in ohio. he's trying harder. did it shake up the narrative, sure, but it's a very close race. >> my pal keith boykins on the other side of the coin. it looks to me like romney has gone behind enemy lines. he's parachuting behind enemy lines in pennsylvania and in michigan and in wisconsin and in iowa. he could be in trouble, keith. >> pennsylvania hasn't voted for a republican since 1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't co
political and get it on before the election to make president obama look presidential or help out victims? >> steve: they are trying to squeeze things in. bon jovi and bruce springsteen support barack obama and in fact mr. springsteen traveled with the president of the united states. where are the conservative performers? there are not any on the line up. when nbc did the event for katrina, do you remember kan ye west where he said george bush doesn't care about black people? how is nbc -- that is the picture right there. how isng to control it? rickk rickk i am sorry, gretchen last one for hurricane katrina was 10 days after. at leastt. maybe 9/11 and 10 days after and let the city get its feet under itself before they went to this is a rushed job because the election is three days after. >> steve: is it a hurricane benefit or a concert for obama? >> gretchen: headlines this morning. he may be on obama's job council but supporting romney. paul otillini. he critized the president for not doing more to create jobs and a stimulus plan. the president's job's council hasn't met since january.
. the obama campaign all romney has done is offered vague policies, that they say are failed from the past. mr. romney is going to seize on the numbers today and fold it into his closing argument speech for the final 9 of hour 96 hours of this campaign. it is a dead sprint. he is going to hit so many places we haven't even been told how many, because they are trying to jam in so many swing states in so many hours. martha: i was talking to chris wallace about their stop in pennsylvania outside of philadelphia and sort of what we can learn from the path right now, obviously wisconsin, obviously ohio, philadelphia also on the list. >> reporter: absolutely. well pennsylvania has been in the blue column and one that president obama won handily against john mccain and mitt romney has not spent a great deal of time. earlier in the summerrer went to the pittsburg area, the coalfields in order to talk about the coal community that makes up so much of western pennsylvania, west virginia, eastern ohio, and it's two things, it's a recognition of the obama campaign's slippage in pennsylvania, as well as in
that this dog was reliable. how was it traind? was the handler traind? was it certified? and mr. gar for the state of florida said that these were extraordinary requirements and he was supported by the obama administration's lawyer who also said what would happen if the court constitutionalized these requirements was that you would start having mini trials with expert witnesses and dogs would be put on trial to determine their reliability and it just wasn't necessary. the court seemed to have trouble trying to find what kind of requirements would ensuring reliability and therefore probable cause for a search. and justice sotomayor, for example, noted that there have been some recent studies that show these dogs aren't infallible. there's one that she noted that had a 12% accuracy rate and she said she was a little troubled by that but it wasn't as clear in the house case that the justices were going to have a problem. >> woodruff: we're going to focus on the track record of those dogs. >> right, and it's hard to measure how reliable a trained dog is. >> woodruff: quickly, marcia, so
to mr. kaine. >> with the recent attack of our consulate in libya, and the admission from our administration that this was an act of terrorism, as the obama administration, in your opinion, overstated the degree to which it has slowed or dismantled al qaeda? >> i think al qaeda remains a very serious concern in different parts of the world. we went to afghanistan to wipe out bin laden and al qaeda. i am happy we have done it. virginia troops are not being deployed so repeatedly now that we are out of iraq and we have been laudable -- bin laden and al qaeda. we need to take the fight to al qaeda where ever they are, yemen, africa, we have to continue to go after al qaeda until all the leadership is gone. the incident in libya was a very troubling one. we need to get to the bottom of it. to find out everything that happened and everything we can find. i have been asked about foreign debates. when something like this happens, it reminds me of how we work together in the aftermath of that horrible tragedy to get answers and make improvements. you find what happened, you find every
's approval rating never recovered once he started tanking after his mr. salmond of hurricane katrina. so this is a big risk i think the president obama. he had to show that he was a leader, minimize any damage, look like he's engaged, and by the way, there's no -- how does he do that? he flew back from florida, state of the white house. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down at eastern seaboard all day, monday and tuesday. chris christie, the governor of new jersey to his state was hardest hit by hurricane sandy has made some very favorable comments, a republican who spent a lot of time bashing obama, over the last couple of months, made some really favorable comments about the president. said he deserves a lot of credit for the storm handle but here's a moment in which the president can you show great leadership and an opportunity to sort of demonstrate the power of the white house and the power of incumbency, or he can screw it up and botch everything and end up losing reelection probably because of it. i think he's probably tilting towards the leadership side no
